In March 2015 the Resuscitation Council (UK) received NICE Accreditation for the process used to assemble and produce all its guideline documents. The new Resuscitation Guidelines, now available have been developed as documented in the Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines Development Process Manual (2015). Accreditation is valid for five years from March 2015.
The NICE Accreditation Scheme recognises organisations that demonstrate high standards in producing health or social care guidance. Users of NICE accredited guidance can therefore have high confidence in the quality of the information provided. The NICE Accreditation was based on the procedures and methodology used in the development of the 2010 Resuscitation Guidelines, as documented in the Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines Development Process Manual (2012).
NICE manages the NHS Evidence service, which provides access to authoritative clinical and non-clinical evidence and best practice through a web-based portal.
